Hi J.,

I used to crochet and have since taught my 11 year old. Fun to learn together, but she decided she wanted to try to knit, something I have never done. So, we purchased the Usborne Book "How to Knit" and it is awesome. What a great easy way to learn. Here is a link to the book you can cut and paste if you are interested http://www.ubah.com/ecommerce/details.asp?sid=A1178&g... or contact me at ____@____.com and I can send you info on the book

Have fun learning!
D.

Hi J.,

There are a couple of yarn stores near you that teach knitting and crocheting - Fishbed Knitting Emporium (316 N River St, East Dundee, ###-###-####) and The Gifted Purl (120 W Main St, West Dundee ###-###-####). There is also a knitting guild that meets in Geneva (Fox Valley Knitter's Guild - www.fvkg.com). Each yarn store has their own knitting groups which will allow you to meet some wonderful people. Good luck and have fun. I take my knitting with me everywhere and knit at my kids' activities.

J. - I don't know if Geneva is too far for you, but Wool and Company on Third Street does fantastic classes. They have fun groups too.
Welcom to the world of knitting!
